Job Transitions in a Time of Automation and Labour Market Crises

Summary: We build a machine learning-based Job Transitions Recommender System that can accurately predict the probability of transitioning between occupations. We showcase the system for workers forced to transition between jobs. The system is based on a novel data-driven method to measure the similarity between occupations based on their underlying skill profiles and real-time job ads. We also build a leading indicator of Artificial Intelligence adoption in Australian industries, outlining gaps, opportunities, and trends.
